That was my Facebook status Thursday afternoon & I had lots of people asking me why I was famous. Well, I'm in another magazine. And, yes, I've been published before but this is the one I'm most excited about.
It's been my favorite project & the editor told me it was one of her's, too. And I guess she was right. She even put a line on the cover to my article!
These are available at Barnes & Noble, Borders, JoAnn's, & I've seen them at Michael's before in our area.
Another thing I was excited about was the photography... and the fact that the article is four pages long instead of one paragraph like my usual. :-)
Isn't this photography amazing?!?
I haven't received the bracelets back from the publisher yet but they'll be going on Etsy or to Room With A Past. I've already had one claimed.
And the magazine is even asking for ideas of what you would do to recycle old measuring tapes. If you get the magazine the info is on page 79. Maybe you can be published, too!
To celebrate I decided to put a couple of new measuring tape bracelets in my Etsy shop. My daughter also has a few that she's selling back in Texas if you're interested & in that area.
Here's a new style that I hadn't made when I sent those in. This is a stiffer tape with a snap. Much quicker to make.
The magazine came at a good time. I've had a tough 2 weeks at work. This was a big encouragement to me. I made a comment to one of my coworkers last week that all the 'yuck' going on at work was ok with me 'cause that's not my career. THIS is my career. Or at least what I want my career to be. So, I'll just keep on creating & sending things in to be published. Thanks GreenCraft Magazine... & all the Roomies who have been encouraging me to keep it up.
